In this learning activity, you will need to perform a packet capture of web requests from `Client1` (10.0.1.11) to `Server1` (10.0.1.10) and the requisite responses. The resulting file should only contain this data.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Install tcpdump
You will need to install tcpdump:
# yum install tcpdump
- Begin the Packet Capture
You will want to apply a capture filter so that you’re only getting web requests:
# tcpdump port 80 -w capture.pcap
- Generate Some Traffic
Since this isn’t a public web server, you will need to generate some traffic from
Server1(10.0.1.10). This needs to be done while the
tcpdumpcapture is running.
- Cancel the Capture and View the File
After you’ve generated some requests, you can cancel the running capture and view the file:
tcpdump -r capture.pcap
Move the file to
/root/if it’s not there already.
